It‘s a bit rainy and blustery this morning, but I had to go see her.

3.5/5

First read of 2019 is complete.

This is a classic fairytale and basically exactly what I expected. A nice short read to start off the year with.

3/5⭐ Full review on my blog.

I grew up with Disney movies, and my favourite was Ariel. And even though loving her for years, I have never read the original story. I decided to read it, to cherish it properly.

The story dropped my jaw, made me unable to sleep. It shook me quite hard.

If you are expecting a happy ending, there is NONE. A very dark story, with a sad and terrible end.

A great author, great descriptions, but a non fairytale end.

Jemgirl2014 I saw the cartoon version of it when I was very young. I definitely remember crying at the end. 13mo

Amanda N. Butler‘s verse novel The Mermarium tells the story of four mermaids whose lives become intertwined through an aquarium that begins as a place of exploitation and transforms into a place of rehabilitation. In spare but evocative verse, Butler conveys the physical and emotional trauma, then healing, these mermaids undergo in their journeys to love and freedom. A unique take on mermaids with contemporary themes of inclusion and acceptance.

@OrangeMooseReads posted the link to this quiz. I‘m inclined to think I‘m a little more selfish than this result implies, but The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite fairytale (the original version, not the Disney HEA). I always thought the ending was so tragically romantic, even as a child. **sigh**

"But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more." - The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen. ?
I like the original even more than the Disney version. It's heartbreaking and bittersweet, and the mermaid sacrifices so much to earn a soul and her humanity. For a good retelling, try "Drown" by Esther Dalseno.
But I do adore the Disney version too! ?
